    Fantasy Football draft online this morning (haven't had a chance to post now). 12 teams, 20 man rosters, whole draft took 75 minutes. I was picking 10th. I'm a little disappointed with how this came out but think I can salvage something good .

    12 starters (QB, 2 RB, 2WR, 1 TE, 1 RB/WR, 1 WR/TE, 1 K, 3 individual defenders) and 8-man bench.

    passing TDs are 4 points, all other TDs (offensive, defensive, special teams) are 6 pts.
    yardage points as well.
    Defenders points (tackles (0.5 solo, 0.25 assist), sack 2, int 3, force fumble 2, fumble recovery 3, safety 3, pass defended 1, block kick 3)
    Kickers have a very low value (FGs 29&less 0.5 points, 30-39 1pt., 40-49 2 pts, 50+ 3pts, missed field goals up to 39 yards are negative points, PATs are .5 points)

    1. (10) Laurence Maroney RB (very tempted to take Westbrook here, but thought that his rushes would be reduced with McNabb back, so I took Maroney instead)
    2. (15) Maurice Jones-Drew RB
    3. (34) Larry Fitzgerald WR (8th WR taken)
    4. (39) Lee Evans WR
    5. (58) Tatum Bell RB
    6. (63) Julius Jones RB
    7. (82) Matt Hasselbeck QB (11th QB taken, was hoping to nab Vince Young in the sixth since the two teams picking after me already had a QB each, but one of them picked him in the four picks before it wrapped back around to me)
    8. (87) Mark Clayton WR
    9. (106) Kevin Curtis WR
    10. (111) Benjamin Watson TE
    11. (130) Greg Jennings WR
    12. (135) DeMeco Ryans DL
    13. (154) Aaron Kampman DL
    14. (159) Leon Washington RB
    15. (178) Mark Anderson DL
    16. (183) Kevin Kaesviharn DB
    17. (202) Eric Johnson TE
    18. (207) Correll Buckhalter RB
    19. (226) Rian Lindell K
    20. (231) David Garrard QB

    If he stays healthy, Hasselbeck is a better choice than Young.

    I don't know if I would have taken Maroney with your first pick. What running backs went after him?

    I had Westbrook rated one spot higher than Maroney then when it came time to pick I went with Maroney thinking Westbrook's carries would be reduced with the return of McNabb.
    To answer your question, between my first pick of Maroney and my second pick of Jones-Drew, the following players were taken: Westbrook, Travis Henry, Peyton Manning, Ronnie Brown.

    (In order, the first nine picks of the draft were: Tomlinson, Jackson, Johnson, Addai, Alexander, Gore, Johnson, Parker, Bush)

    I love the Maroney pick. Hated the Drew pick. Fred Taylor is going to eat a lot of his yards this year.

    If Maroney or Jones-Drew goes down you could be in trouble. Especially with Kjones coming back in Detroit and Marion Barber looking to get more carries in Dallas....

    Good Quarterbacks... strong depth there... like the evans pick.... like the tight ends.

    anyway if anyone wants to comment on my team be my guest... im kinda worried about my qbs.

    I think the second team is better, but I like Romo on team one... everyone is always down on him but he piles on the yards
